The Professional LLM in Bankruptcy and Insolvency Law is a two-year, part-time program designed for bankruptcy and insolvency professionals and those working in related areas who want to develop greater expertise in this dynamic area. This unique LLM program examines the laws, rules, theories and policies that underlie both business and personal bankruptcy and insolvency law in Canada, the United States and internationally.
The degree requirements will be satisfied upon the completion of 36 credits. There are two options for completing this degree.
Option I: Coursework and Major Research Paper [36 credits]
Option II: Coursework Only [36 credits]
The Advanced Legal Research Workshop is not required for students writing a Significant Research Paper but is strongly recommended in order for students to review writing and research skills.
Courses will be offered in a combination of weekly and intensive formats. Videoconferencing is available for most courses, although occasional in-person attendance in Toronto is required (refer to the schedule for specific details on each course).
